Good Morning CHILDREN OF GOD, welcome to the worship service this morning. As we come together let’s forget about ourselves and draw our wondering minds to the throne of grace prepared for this moment in time. We are truly blessed and it is now time to draw from the fountain of learning, designed to encourage our hearts and equip us to bring wondering souls to Christ. This time has been set aside for edification, restoration and rebuilding of shattered lives and hearts, as well as healing and comfort for those who are sick and in need of a special blessing. As the man-servant of God humbles himself so he can be used as an instrument, let us pray that his message will enlighten, comfort and bring hope to those who are seeking, open and ready to receive. “It is good to give thanks to the Lord and to sing praise to your name, O Most High” (Psalm 92:1NKJV). May you be filled with great joy this day!!

TODAY’S BIBLE STUDY SESSION TITLE:
UNITY THROUGH HUMILITY:
In today’s Bible Study Session, Pastor Davis takes us on a journey into the heart of the Church at Philippi as the Apostle Paul, its leader, was bound in chains in a prison in Rome. He wrote one of his most important letters to his Church and His Beloved Brethren. Now click on this video clip and lets begin our study and worship session for this day.
TIME FOR ALTER CALL:
HOW TO RECEIVE THE GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE What must I do to be saved? This question was first asked by a jailer at Ephesus, who witnessed an earthquake that freed Paul and Silas. Paul and Silas were the Church’s first official evangelists, who had been falsely arrested and beaten and left in his charge. The earthquake came as the climax to a midnight prison cell prayer and praise meeting and it spurred the jailer to consider the condition of his soul.
What must I do to be saved, you asked? If you truly want to be saved, listen to what the Lord says you must do, “you should first go to God in prayer. When praying to Him you should tell Him you are sorry for the sinful things that you have done against Him and how you want to do the right thing from now on (1 John 1:9, Acts 20:21).
Next you should ask Him to forgive your sins through His death payment on the cross (Colossians 2:10-14). Last, make a commitment to God that you will wholly follow His commandments and believe on Him and His Word, with the help of His Holy Spirit (John 14:15).
Congratulations, you are SAVED (John 8:32)! You have become a new person, and you will be able to live a life that is pleasing to God (2 Corinthians 5:14-17 ). Now, God will come into your heart and live with you (Revelation 3:20). This is so you can be close to Him, receive His power, and understand His Word (1 John 3:16, Acts1:8, John14:26).
Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and topresent you blameless before the presence of His glory with great joy, to the only God, our savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Be glory majesty,, Dominion, and authority, before all the time and now and forever, amen.
